Recharge with this powerful, citrusy smoothie, alive with antioxidant goodness
This bizarre-sounding combo of vitamin C champions (orange, strawberries, sweet potato, and red bell pepper) creates a delicious immunity blend that’s also a great way to get kids to drink their vegetables. For added anti-inflammatory power, throw in the goji berries, ground flaxseeds, and turmeric.
1 cup (240 ml) freshly squeezed orange juice
1 orange, peeled, seeded, and quartered
1⁄2 cup (70 g) mashed cooked orange sweet potato
1⁄2 cup (60 g) frozen raw cauliflower florets
1⁄4 cup (35 g) diced red bell pepper
1⁄4 cup (30 g) blanched raw almonds, soaked (see page 6)

1⁄2 teaspoon natural vanilla extract
1 1⁄2 teaspoons pure maple syrup, plus more to taste
1 cup (160 g) frozen strawberries
2 cups (250 g) ice cubes
